Russia/Ukraine crisis exacerbating global food insecurity (All About Feed)

April 20, 2022


All About Feed published an article that states the implementation of export restrictions to address food supply disruptions is increasing global food insecurity, according to senior research fellows Joseph Glauber and David Laborde. They say Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has come at a bad time for global food markets. Russia and Ukraine account for 12% of total calories traded, and as the war continues there is a growing likelihood that food shortages, especially grains and vegetable oils, will become acute, leading more countries to impose restrictions. Glauber and Laborde used IFPRI’s Food & Fertilizer Export Restrictions Tracker to analyze how the war in Ukraine has affected global trade. Since the Russian invasion began at the end of February, the number of counties imposing export restrictions on food has risen from 3 to 16, representing about 17% of total calories traded in the world.
